When it comes to sports, Berlin is Germany’s number one. The city has regularly hosted a glittering array of top international events, including European and World Championships in a wide range of sports. Berlin also boasts cutting-edge sports venues, from the famous Olympiastadion (Olympic Stadium) to the renowned Mercedes-Benz Arena, from the iconic Velodrom to the popular Max-Schmeling-Halle and the one-of-a-kind stadium An der Alten Försterei. And the Berliners themselves are the heart and soul of this sports metropolis, not only warmly welcoming the many festive fan groups in their bright club colours, but also loving the thrills of different sports – and only too happy to celebrate their own sporting heroes.
The top names in track and field events can be found at the ISTAF Berlin – International Stadium Festival Berlin – in the city’s legendary Olympiastadion and at the ISTAF INDOOR in the Mercedes-Benz Arena, both enjoyed by many Berlin families, complete with children and friends.
